Photos of the 2012 Kimber Sapphire Ultra II, Micro CDP, and more!
Kimber had 4 new pistols on display at SHOT, including what may be the most stunning production pistol at the show. This gun is the Sapphire Ultra II. This is a 3″ Ultra with nitre blue colored slide and small parts. The polishing and bluing is by Turnbull. The slide is stainless steel and the color is applied by PVD. The slide is engraved tastefully and the gun has the rounded butt of the Super Carry Ultra and wedge sights.
The other new gun with finish by Turnbull is the Classic Carry Pro. This is essentially a Pro size version of the new Royal with charcoal blue finish by Turnbull and bone grips. It has a serrated “bobtail like” mainspring housing,checkered frontstrap, serrated top on the slide, and a flush slide stop.
The two other new offerings are the Micro CDP, a mousegun sized .380 version of Kimber’s CDP pistol line. Kimber has also produced a new model of their popular 9mm SOLO pistol with CDP styling.
